We are writing this letter in regards to our experience with J.W. Bills & Sons, Inc.
Our house, which is well over one hundred years old, was in need of restoration work, and due to our unique architecture we needed someone who could restore and amplify our house's features. We searched and interviewed different contractors for over five years until we found someone we were confident in.
We employed Jim Bills to take on this daunting task. His craftsmanship and vision demonstrated to us that he was more than qualified to perform this project; everything came out to perfection.
We could not recommend anyone more highly to do restorative work. To say we were pleased is putting it mildly.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need any further information.

I am writing this letter to provide a wholehearted recommendation for Jim Bills & Sons Roofing Contractor. Jim and his team have done several roofing jobs for me and I have always found him to provide the highest standard of workmanship. Furthermore, I have found him to be highly reliable in performing the work on time, when scheduled, and for the price quoted. I also appreciate his expertise in working on my historic home in a way fully in keeping with the character of the structure. Before finding Jim Bills I used several other roofing companies and he is by far the best.
I just wanted to let you know that the work was of excellent quality, and folks who did the work here were capable and friendly. I will happily recommend you to friends who need flashing, copper, and/or roofing work in the future.
It is my pleasure to write this referral for JW Bills & Sons.
Very few companies are able to do the specialized, complex and nuanced work that this company does. This is especially true for projects of a historic nature involving slate and copper. As a third generation roofer, Jim Bills' knowledge of details and methods is extensive and steeped in experience.
Having worked and lived in Monmouth County for decades, Jim Bills and his company are well aware of the significant and historic structures that dot the shore landscape. Just how meaningful many of these buildings are to locals cannot be over stated, and this provides much of the enthusiasm JW Bills & Sons brings to each project.
I have recommended JW Bills & Sons to many clients with great success and have personally contracted with them for slate roofing and copper work for my own properties. The work has always been done professionally and safely, without short cuts or mess.
It is without reservation that I can recommend JW Bills & Sons as experts in the slate and copper work.
Very yours truly,
Jay D. Measly, Architect
This letter is to state our complete satisfaction, trust and endorsement of the J.W. Bills and Sons Roofing Company and its owner, Jim Bills.
Our church, St. George's-by-the-River which was built in 1905 and in 2007 was placed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places.
During the last 10 years, J.W. Bills and Sons has performed numerous tasks at our site, including the periodic repair of leaks in our century-old slate roof on our church, complete replacement of a flat chapel roof, and installation of a shingle roof on a detached garage. These projects were completed in a professional, timely manner and at a fair price. Of note has been the outstanding responsiveness of Bills and Sons to reported instances of leaks.
In planning a major capital project to replace our 100-year-old slate roof on our church, Jim evaluated the scope of the project and gave us a projected cost, which enabled us to budget the necessary funds through the capital campaign. We competitively bid the roof replacement, and after evaluation the contract was awarded to Bills and Sons based on the thoroughness of the bid response, price, and reference calls.
The site work started in mid-July and is almost fifty percent complete. Jim and his crew have done a great job, not only in doing the work, but also in maintaining a safe and clean worksite. They have taken extensive measures to protect our priceless stained-glass windows. All aspects of their work have met or exceeded our expectations. We are confident the project will be completed on time and within budget. We are also confident this roof will preserve the integrity of our church for another 100+ years.
In closing we again highly recommend J.W. Bills and Sons to anyone undertaking a historic restoration project that requires a reputable, professional and experienced roofing company who will deliver a quality project on time and on budget.
Approximately 10 years ago, I had a roof installed on my 100+ year home, by a local roofer. The work turned out to be a nightmare. Over the years we experienced leaks that damaged inside walls and deterioration of the materials used to support the roofing tiles.
I reached out to JW Bills and after examining the roof's condition, Jim provided me with a plan to fix the problem areas and not one to replace the entire roof, all at a reasonable cost. Additionally, the roof titles that I had used on my house were no longer in stock. Jim and his team made sure that they did the job in a way to preserve and re-use the tiles.
His team was polite and completed the job promptly, and then made sure that everything was cleaned up around my home.
The quality of work and the beauty of the copper piping he put into the valleys of the roof line have resulted in a completely dry home with a beautiful roof.
I would highly recommend JW Bills for anyone or organization looking for quality roofing.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the service, quality and results.

I appreciate all the hard work you and your guys did for us. Your expertise and craftmanship has greatly enhanced the beauty and durability of the house.
I will call you if other projects come up down the line!
I have known Jim Bills and have employed his company since 2003.
In 1995-1996, my wife and I had a new home constructed for us on Little Silver Point Road in Little Silver by a different contractor. Within a few years, a number of problems developed with the exterior construction. I brought in Jim Bills to correct these problems and have brought him back repeatedly as new issues have arisen.
Among other things, Jim and his company have installed waterproof membranes and drip edges to the roofing, lead coated copper gutters and downspots, removed and replaced rotted trim, and redesigned my roof vents in order to block infiltrating snow. I have found that Jim provides a level of craftmanship which is hard to find in a contractor these days. All of his jobs for me have been performed in a timely manner and within the budget.
I don't have any reservations in recommending his services. Please let me know if you need any further information.

You are truly a gentleman, a true professional, a craftsman, and a wonderful human being.
We will never forget that you were there for us right after Sandy and stayed with us throught (near) completion of the remediation and repairs.
You kept your word and communicated incredibly well.
You never told me where I could shove my daily lists.
Without question, you have made our home better and sounder.
You have made a very distressingly bad situation tolerable and I will indeed miss you every day.
I am sure we will work together again as we have found a reliable friend and 'custodian of our home' and property.
We hope you make good use of this token of our appreciation and respect with your family.
With much regard and affection,
David and Sheila
